Yep it's 2 am

And I can't sleep. LO has been kicking the crap out of me all night. Now I'm hungry too and thinking about everything I still have to do before he comes. At my appt today I found out I'm 2 cm dilated and 50 percent effaced. My OB seems to think he's coming soon. I just hope my water doesn't break at work. Any other ladies with this fear?

  • I was terrified of that but I am officially on maternity leave now. I wish it was just baby boxing but I'm pretty sure the pain I'm having is full blown contractions. GL getting some sleep.

  • It's 3:30 and I am having the same problem. Not awake cause of contractions or kicking, just can't sleep

  • My water did break at work! Gushed, actually. And yes, it was super embarrassing. I made a mad dash for the bathroom, but not before I leaked all over everywhere.

    For as ridiculous as my work was w the pg comments, they were wonderful at mobilizing to get me to the hospital.

  • At least being up is good practice for when LO is here 8D. I am freaking out about my water breaking anywhere! Like it just doesn't seem like anyplace other than in the shower would be ok. I'm terrified of it happening at work or at the mall or at my DS tee ball game! My DH keeps telling me it's natural and wouldn't be embarrassing, easy for him to say its not gonna happen to him lol
  • totally have this fear, because my hospital is *not* closest to my work... I work for the closer hospital (I'm at the corporate center, not the actual hospital) 

    In all fairness, the two hospitals are pretty much BOTH top rated for baby stuff (L&D, NICU, peds)... and both were remodeled within the past 5 years, but I just like the one by my house better...

  • If my water breaks at work there us no chance I will make it to my hospital. My work would call an ambulance and the closest hospital would be in manhattan rather then Staten Island. Hopefully that doesn't happen to me

  • Had the same problem last night. I think I had a contraction or two.. and baby kept kicking me right below my sternum so I had the WORST heartburn. Though I eventually went to sleep and now I'm wide awake only 5 hours later!

    My fear is that my water will break while I'm at the grocery store..

  • Yup. I work with about 80 kids this summer and am dreading a room full of them yelling Ms. Lindsey peed herself.
